North Kerry League Div. 2 Duagh 0-07 Asdee 0-09, Asdee pulled off a super win in Duagh to clinch a place in the North Kerry League Final. Playing against the wind in the first half, Asdee played some great possession football & opened the scoring with a lovely point from Sean Keane. A Duagh point was followed by two frees from Darragh Keane & Paul O’Carroll to give Asdee the lead, before Duagh put the pressure on to score 3 frees ahead of the break, to lead 4 points to 3 at half time.
Duagh started the stronger in the second half & added three points in the opening ten minutes to lead by 4 points. However, from then on it was a brilliant display of football from Asdee as they took over proceedings for the final quarter.
Paul O’Carroll kicked a beauty of a free to cut the lead, before an intercepted kick out by Sean Keane released Darragh Keane through on goal, seeing him pulled down by the keeper, resulting in a black card. Darragh pointed the resulting free, before Asdee squandered a few chances to close the gap further. Following an excellent team move up the field, Brendan Keane kicked a fine point to pull the gap back to 1 point. Asdee were in control, but Duagh were defending in numbers to hold their lead.
With only a couple of minutes of normal time left, a lovely move saw Eoin Kennedy dummy inside from the wing & curl over a beauty to level the scores. Asdee made their pressure tell to win a free, which was coolly converted by Paul O’Carroll to give Asdee the lead.
Duagh went in search of a point but were turned over by the excellent Asdee defence, who then held onto the ball expertly for about 3 minutes, culminating in a mighty Darragh Keane point. Duagh had one final venture forward for a goal but the high ball was caught in the square by the outstanding Kieran Kelly. Eamon Moran, who did a fine job refereeing, blew the final whistle to give Asdee a 0-9 to 0-7 victory.
Great credit to everyone from 1 to 15 for their fierce work rate & quality of play throughout, they can all be proud of themselves. A massive well done to the team & management, who have put in a few great displays to qualify for the final, despite the tight numbers.
Asdee team: James Kelly, Con Carmody, Martin Collins, Conor Keane, Kieran Kelly, Owen Tydings, Paul O’Carroll 3pts, John Doran, Jack Keane, Darragh Keane 3pts, Sean Keane 1pt, Eoin Kennedy 1pt, Cyril Dineen, Stephen Lynch, Brendan Keane 1pt.
